- This piece was created as an advertisment for Motionless in White anda new (fictional) album entitled Venom, featuring the lead vocalist Chris(Motionless) Cerulli. As Venom was the theme I was highly influenced byvenomous creatures and their physical characteristics. This definetelyinspired my concept and included such elements as bright neon coloursrelating to the colours of some poisonous amphibians. This was then fusedwith the typical Gothic appearance MIW (Motionless in White) portrays.Another feature within this piece based on the venom theme was the sharpstyle typography, which especially showed on the serifs. This was basedupon a scorpian's tail sting.A cropped version of this illustration would be used as the albums artwork.
- This piece was created as an editorial illustration to be used alongside aninterview with pop legend Robbie Williams . This article talked about his newalbum at the time entitled 'Take the Crown' and the song 'Candy'.SInce the interview spoke about 'Candy' I thought a twist around that wordwould be an interesting direction. After development I decided portraying RobbieWilliams as Willy Wonka from 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', the fun andwacky creator of this piece if music would be a very quirky twist on the theme.
